Did you hear that?
That, I just heard it again. Didn't you?
No, I didn't hear a th.. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr....... Wait, yes I think I did.
Er, has any one got any rations left?.....
Theres a good boy, sit, siiiiiiiiiiiiit.
This was the must-have from Bones 4 for me! I cut off and modded the legs and created the base with apoxie sculpt so the hut can be placed on its own or on the legs. The paint scheme is "chicken" ;)
I can't even remember all the colors I used on this thing, it was a mad mix of Reaper browns and golds, Pokorny terracotta, homemade washes, and I pretty much just kept going at it until I was happy. I hit everything with a matte varnish except several coats of gloss varnish on the window glass.
This is the Bones 4 version of Hakon, Iconic Skald (60182) that comes as part of the Pathfinder Iconics II stretch goal. This figure was on my wish list so I was really happy to see it in the Kickstarter. He reminds me of Thorin Oakenshield from The Hobbit (film).
My niece has her birthday in a week or so. We were up visiting so I thought I would bring up a dragon I created for her. I also had gotten the copper and alchemy set from scale 75 and kaphrixis is a copper dragon so...
Here is the finished piece. The body was done with copper from scale 75 mixed with some Jaquards dry copper pigments for effect. The wings were aquamarine mixed with the copper and that was the effect I got. I thought the upper wings were gorgeous
Then I asked: where would a dragon keep his spellbook? Answer: tatooed.to his wings of course!
So enjoy! I think I will try this again and see if I can duplicate or improve the results. I especially want to work on some tattoo effects. I would ask for critique but the metal effect just doesn't come through the camera well. In real life the lower scales are significantly darker than the upper scales (decayed metal vs new copper) but it just doesn't carry.
And she got the mini today and loved it!

This past week I painted the Djinni figure from the Fan Favorites set. When I first saw this figure in the Kickstarter, being a child of the 60's and 70's, the first image that flashed in my mind was Jeannie from the classic I Dream of Jeannie TV show. I knew that this was the color scheme I wanted to use on my Djinni figure. :)
I made a couple changes to the figure. First, I separated the lamp portion of the integral base so I could mount it on a different base; and Second, I mounted the sword the correct way as it is shown in the concept art, not upside down and left-handed as the figure comes.
